“A prominent transphobe buying a large stake in Twitter is not at all funny”

Woke Twitter employees took to the platform Monday to share their anger about Elon Musk buying a controlling stake in the company, following the billionaire’s previous comments about wanting to restore free speech.
Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 25, 2022
Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?
Musk has bought 9.2 percent of Twitter shares, meaning he is one of the principle owners of the platform.
As reporter Andy Ngo noted, one Twitter data “scientist” immediately labelled Musk a ‘transphobe’ and said she/her is “terrified”:
Days after inquiring his followers about free speech (& the lack thereof), @elonmusk has become Twitter's largest shareholder. Many leftists are concerned about what this might mean for their stranglehold on censorship policies that favor their politics. https://t.co/AX88EugV3E— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) April 4, 2022
